The design and performance of a cavity-dumped Ti:sapphire oscillator and short pulse-pumped amplifier system is presented. Dumped pulses as short as 12 fs nJ in energy, with 70-80 percent dumping efficiency are made possible by a stretched dumper-arm configuration. The oscillator yields stable, reliable, and reproducible pulses. Pulse duration and phase structure are analyzed via wavelength-resolved nonresonant scattering. Single and multi-pass amplification schemes and performance results are described. The optical continuum generated using single-pass amplified pulses is characterized by frequency-resolved cross-correlations.
